LOCATION: Bronx, NYC
REPORTS TO: Managing Director, Social Ventures
The Social Ventures team at Per Scholas has launched Platform by Per Scholas, a new, large-scale, customized training effort that contracts with large US-based information technology services companies to train local talent for in-demand roles. We are a small, multi-disciplinary team seeking individuals who can ensure the success of this new initiative.
WHO WE ARE LOOKING FOR:
Platform by Per Scholas (“Platform”) has an opening for a Director, Curriculum & Instruction who thrives in a dynamic, fast-paced environment and has a strong training and development background. As a curriculum and content developer, you will be responsible for analyzing, designing, and developing high-quality training content for information technology and career advancement learning programs offered by Platform. You will be an important member of the Social Ventures team managing at least 4 to 6 instructors, and responsible for the delivery of high-quality skill-based information technology training for 400 adult students annually. This position works in close coordination with the Director of Social Ventures and Innovation.
WHAT YOU’LL DO:
This role focuses on instructional design, curriculum development, and program management. This is not a training delivery role as it does not involve regular classroom delivery of training, though occasional instruction will be required. You will play a significant role in the training, development and ongoing evaluation of a successful and effective instructor team.
WHAT YOU’LL BRING:
WHY WORK HERE?
We believe our staff is the heart and soul of the organization. Our workplace culture is challenging, supportive, collaborative and mission-driven. We take a genuine interest in career paths and work-life balance and take contributing ideas from staff at all levels. Working at Per Scholas means working somewhere full of engaging, savvy, diverse people who care deeply about pushing our work forward.
You’ll enjoy company retreats, a welcoming and casual professional environment, self-development opportunities, innovative technology, and benefits like health care and a 401K match. If you want to work in a progressive organization, where you can build something meaningful and have fun while doing it, we would love to hear from you.
